Similar to the emergence of previous Covid-19 variants, Omicron has caused widespread alertness and concern this month. While we know more now about the treatment as well as how to avoid spreading Covid-19, the debut of this new variant raises several questions about how it will affect our daily lives as well as medical visits.


Many Covid-19 policies continue to be in place, specifically in medical settings like your doctor or dentist’s office. To ease your mind and keep you well-informed, here are three key things you should know about Omicron as you prepare to visit your doctor or dental office.

  1. It’s Easier To Spread Than Delta, But Not Currently Widespread In The U.S.
    1. The Centers For Disease Control (CDC) as well as medical experts across the globe are still trying to learn more about Omicron as it spreads. We do know that it is easier to pass along to others than the Delta variant, which means mask-wearing, hand-washing and social distancing practices should be top of mind.
  2. We Don’t Know How Severe The New Variant Is Yet
    1. It’s too soon for researchers to tell how severely Omicron will affect those who contract this version of Covid, especially compared to the Delta variant. Your best course of action to protect yourself and your loved ones is to follow the above health and safety protocols and get vaccinated if you haven’t already.
  3. Is It Safe To Go To The Dentist During Covid’s Latest Variant Debut?
    1. Yes, you should not postpone or cancel your dental or doctor’s appointments, because of Omicron. As long as you take the proper health and safety precautions listed above, your chances of catching the Delta or Omicron variant decrease significantly. Many dental offices like ours have taken several steps to ensure the safety of each client during their appointments.
    2. Taking care of your overall health is equally important when compared to your safety from Covid-19. Practicing good oral hygiene, attending dental check-ups and practicing good hand washing can further protect you from this virus.

Real Patient Reviews

I have been going to this practice for several years now. I seemingly never have to wait when I arrive at the office and they are all very professional. Dr. Hartlieb and Dr. Ching have been terrific. In addition to doing great dental work, each has a great rapport with their patients. All of their assistants have been top notch as well.

I recently met with Dr. Ching to have some dental work done, and had an exceptional experience at this office! I usually hate going to the dentist, but this experience was different–this office is hands-down, THE nicest dental facilitiy I have ever seen.

- Shaun F.

This dental office is something I haven’t seen before. I had many past dental experiences at other dental offices (unfortunately not good) and finally I found Chicago Beautiful Smiles. Dr. Hartlieb had helped me restore my teeth to a beautiful smile.

- Natasa R.

I am a loyal patient for over (yikes!) 20 years because I appreciate the time, skill and patience of the entire team. As proof of my gratitude, I live in the city and reverse commute every six months for my appointment.

- Dennis H.

Dr. Hartlieb is by far the best dentist I have ever been to. He has transformed my smile into something of beauty. In fact, many people comment on how beautiful my teeth are who do not even know that I have had major dental work performed. I used to never want to smile that large before, but now I smile as big as possible when photographed.

- Fran L.

I always have a great experience when I go to Chicago Beautiful Smiles. The staff is amazing and Dr. Hartlieb and Dr. Ching are extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The facility is incredible and I feel like I’m being treated with the best technology in the dental industry. Go to Chicago Beautiful Smiles for a consultation and I guarantee you will go back time and time again. It does not get any better in the Chicago area.

- Antonio S.

I had a great experience with Dr. Ching – very professional and thorough in his craft. I had been seeing my previous dentist for the past 15 years; however, I am ready to make the permanent switch to Chicago Beautiful Smiles. Dr. Ching is great at explaining the procedures he was performing and made my visit comfortable.
